Microsoft finally reveals the new look of its upcoming Kinect hardware for the Windows version 2. Microsoft is expected to release this new  Kinect for Windows v2 hardware soon. Although Microsoft hints in its blog that the software giant "continue the march toward the upcoming launch of Kinect for Windows v2," but no exact date of launch is yet revealed.

But before launch, the Redmond reveals the new look and features of the upcoming Kinect. The new version of Kinect has almost same sensor as that of present in the first version of Kinect for Xbox One. However, the top panel logo is now missing the word "Xbox". Only “Kinect” logo is imprinted on the top and "the Xbox Nexus—the stylized green “x”—has been changed to a simple, more understated power indicator," according to MSDN Blog.

Kinect sensor consists of 2 other major components: the hub and power supply. The images of the new Kinect for Windows hub and power supply are given above. The hub accepts three connections: the sensor, USB 3.0 output to PC, and power. And the power supply cable will provide all the power to sensor for working. The power supply cable will support voltages from 100–240 volts. However, this range of the power cables will vary by country or region.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
